  • "Booking accommodation unseen can be tricky."

    The description does not always match the reality. No such problem here. If anything the web page did not do the accommodation justice. We were delighted with every aspect of Spinneys Den; big enough to contain all that is needed, yet small enough to have real charm. The rooms were exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. The balcony provides a wonderful space to enjoy a meal or drink while taking in the lovely views.

  • "We had a lovely stay at spinneys den and we came away feeling very relaxed."

    The hot tub was lovely after a long walk or day out and all the little added treats such as the scones and dog treats were very thoughtful. We would 100% recommend this place to anyone and in such a lovely beautiful place and surrounding also.

    I loved sitting on the balcony and watching the wildlife even though it’s near a road I hardly noticed it. Would definitely go back and it’s 5 star rating from us.

  • "Such a relaxing and welcoming place to stay."

    Everything was provided , even for the dog. I stay in alot of places with hot-tubs and theirs was the best I've used. We stayed for 1 week and visited lots of places, short drive to the Norfolk broads and beaches. A must is Horsey Gap, a walk along the beach to see the seals resting. You won't regret booking a stay here. And the welcoming gift of goodies was lovely and very thoughtful x

  • "We absolutely loved the property."

    We have stayed in lots of good places, and always filter by excellent reviews. This property is the most immaculate property we have ever stayed in. It smells wonderful, the personal touches are evident throughout, the facilities are top notch, and the generosity of the owners is noticeable and appreciated. Hot tub and garden area are lovely. The balcony is wonderful and I imagine quite fabulous in sunnier weather. The Den is on the owners' property but is private and I can't see that it would cause any issues. I heartily recommend it as a lovely little retreat for 2 and a dog if you have one. If you don't then you needn't worry about the cleanliness at all. The only downside I see (which we did realise) is the lack of WiFi. I can perhaps see that being problematic if you're staying a week or two. That's a personal choice in the end. We loved it and the hosts are excellent.

  • "Spinney’s Den is such a lovely little cottage, perfect for two of us."

    It was clean, well appointed and had lovely little touches to make it feel homely. The hot tub was great but because of high winds we only used it twice during our stay. The only down side is it didn’t have any WiFi which we didn’t realise until a few days before our stay. We just assumed most places has WiFi these days. It could have been made clearer on the website. Otherwise we couldn’t fault it.

    The property is as described, clean and has everything you could need for a weekend of relaxation. The hot tub was lovely after a day of walking on the beach and the cottage had nice personal touches on arrival. Our pup Nico was poorly and Nikki kindly let us have medication delivered to their home while we were out. We truly had a brilliant time and hope to go back again soon! Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

  • "Excellent property, everything you could wish for."

    John, the owner, called round to check that everything was ok, which was very reassuring. Definitely a dog friendly property too, with a really secure garden which made a change. Special touches of leaving a bed, treats and a towel for our dog was especially nice. We booked as our family were staying a few minutes away, so had a wonderful Christmas all together. I understand that John and Nikki only took over the property in January but very professional. We will return

    What amazed us was the thoughtfulness of the owners to think about the needs of the incoming guests. Directions, description,the quality of refurbishment and the hot tub. We have recommended this place to friends and will go there again.

  • "Absolutely fabulous accommodation, could not fault it."

    We loved the extra welcoming touches for both humans and dog. The area was just right for a short break in the countryside. We arrived and storm Arwen visited us on the Saturday evening, we were all safely tucked up in the cosy cottage listening to the battle rage outside! We did manage to use the hot tub on two nights during a lull in the wind which was heavenly after coming back from long walks with the hound. Our thanks to John & Nikki for providing a super holiday home. Mari, Peter & Milo.

    Wonderful views from the lounge balcony, amazing hot tub to relax in after a day walking. Set in an stunning area with beaches, countryside and seaside towns to discover in local vicinity. Loads of extras from owners which are really nice touches such as scones and jam on arrival and dog treats for Albert. John and Nicki are great hosts, very discreet but there if you need and information about the local area, shops, restaurants walks, etc.

    A half hour walk to Mundesley which has a lovely long sandy beach and a couple of pubs that serve food. Nikki and John are next door if needed and even let us know where there were fuel supplies during the recent crisis. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing break near the coast.

    The owners have provided everything you need for your stay, including items for the dog i.e, dog bed!, towels and treats. We did bring our own but the fact they included such items for the dog is amazing. A lovely welcome pack upon our arrival included fresh bread and scones, and milk in the fridge. incredible! much appreciated after our 7hr journey. Beautiful cottage with fabulous views of the countryside and the hot tub is an absolute bonus. Beautiful location; feels like the middle of nowhere yet not far from Mundesley, Bacton, Walcot, Cromer etc. Local walks for the dog included open fields and woodland nearby, plus of course the local beaches. All in all, a brilliant and relaxing week. Donald, Eileen and Harvey.

    So peacefu, relaxing hot tub an asset. Had a relaxing and peaceful stay. Nikki and John were great hosts. Recommend visiting local butcher they recommended. Excellent choice at the butchers and staff very helpful and friendly. No pub or local shop within easy walking distance, but ok as you can relax sat outside. Lovely to sit and have breakfast on the balcony with views over the fields. Saw deer in the fields, wonderful sunrises and sunsets from the balcony. Looking to see when we can go again, highly recommend.

The property

Set just a couple of miles inland from the beautiful Norfolk coast lies Spinney’s Den in the village of Knapton.

The property is a reverse-level annexe situated on the owners’ land and boasts a wonderful view of the neighbouring fields and countryside.

This romantic retreat is the ideal sanctuary from which to discover the local surroundings.

Set over two floors, this charming dwelling benefits from sea views and a delightful hot tub, and is sure to be the perfect retreat for an adventurous holiday or a relaxing break.

With off-road parking for one car, park up at the property and gather your belongings before stepping into a cute porch - With handy storage for games and ironing facilities, you can kick off your shoes and hang up your coats before heading up to the first-floor, open-plan living area.

The open-plan living space offers an intimate dining table for two to enjoy your evening meals at with a glass of wine, before sinking into the plush sofa and escaping in front of the TV.

From here, the well-stocked kitchen hosts an oven and hob, alongside all the necessary appliances, such as a microwave, toaster and kettle for your culinary needs throughout your stay.

The first floor is also home to a shower room, complete with a walk-in shower, heated towel rail, a hand basin and a WC, where you can freshen up and prepare for the day ahead.

Exceptional views are available from the first-floor balcony, where two patio chairs and a table look out over the vast fields, over to the sea and, just to the right, a picturesque church to complete the stunning scenery.

Back on the ground floor, you will discover the double bedroom, hosting storage and a hanging rail for your belongings, while a ground-floor cloakroom is a further welcome convenience.

Unwind into your evening by stepping outside and enjoying the bubbling hot tub in the patio garden, also home to some splendid flower beds and more garden furniture for you to enjoy your breakfast in the morning sun.

For days out while staying at the property, venture out of Knapton village to the beautiful beaches at Mundesley and Triningham just a stone’s throw away, before stopping at one of local cafés for a coffee fix or morning treat.

For the adventurous types, head over to Bacton Woods to be encompassed by enchanting forest scenery, home to a plethora of tree species and offering an abundance of routes for walking, cycling and horseback riding.

Just a short car journey from the property is the famous Broads where you can navigate around the water paths and experience one of Norfolk's most esteemed attractions, coupled with the rich history of castles, cathedrals and mills, the Broads make for a fascinating day out for anyone.

For the history enthusiasts, museums covering a range of topics, more notably Norfolk’s own Admiral Nelson, are located in this area too and there are plenty of ruins and landmarks for you to marvel at, such as Somerleyton Hall or the ruins of All Saints Church in Billockby.

Whatever the weather, Spinney's Den is a home from home for you to make memories in Norfolk, any time of year.
